OH ! HOW I WISH I COULD SLEEP UNTIL MY DADDY COMES HOME (Sam M. Lewis, Joe Young / Pete Wendling, 1918) "Early to bed, Early to rise," I heard a mother say to her angel eyes; "Dream of your Dad, My little lad, Don't wake until the sun appears; in the skies," "I hate the sunshine," he said, "It makes me get out of bed." Two little eyes, Dotted with tears, They tell a story full of darkness and fears; Two shoulders bear Sorrow and care, A weight too great for just a baby in years, "Mamma," the laddie explains, Sunshine brings nothing but pains." Oh! how I wish I could sleep, until my Daddy comes home; Oh! mamma why must we always be all alone? I miss him more every day, How can you ask me to play; You're always sighing and crying, since he went away; Last night I heard Daddy call, But I was dreaming thats all; He kissed me, and he said, "Go to bed, my own;" Oh! mamma, that's when I thought, God made the night time too short; Oh! how I wish I could sleep, Until my Daddy comes home."
